Just a quick question to the pros from a relative newbie:

Of the expansion packs released, which units benefit most from having multiple copies? I've only purchased the figs from one line--and I only purchased one pack of each--but I noticed that at least one unit type (the Drones, to be precise) seemed to almost require multiple purchases.

Are they many units like this in the other expansions? Which are they?

Thanks!

The Roman Arhers are a bit like this, as if you lose one, their special attack becomes worthless.

The Drones are the only unit in the game that requires multiples to be effective. However, as mentioned above, many units need more than just one squad to compensate for attrition. The Roman Archers was a good example. You loose just one and the squad is about useless....

I think everyone of them benefits from having at least two on the board at least for the ability of being able to move and use the full amount on the card after someone dies.
